"Eye of the Storm"
by Blindside
About A Burning Fire (2003/Elektra/3 Points)

tabulture interpreted/written/transcribed by Zak Hall

Note: this is my best interpretation of what is being played, and is probably in some 
inaccurate, and I am aware of that, however, I put this out here because I believe it
is enough to place out there, and is probably more accurate than most unofficial tabs,
because I am avidly against stupidly inaccurate tabs.


legend:
#'s (1,2,3...) = fret number / note to be held, not finger placed there necessarily
x =palm mute
x##...=palm mute fret number
|| =end of phrase/measure(s)
|||| = repeat phrase/measure(s)
(#) = harmonics (on that fret)
x(#) = harmonic strum
# + # = hammer-on
# * # = pull-off
@# = vibrato
# ^ (#) = bend note up (#) steps
# / # = slide up
# \ # = slide down
$# = sweep pick
[#] = optional (would fit, and/or sounds like it's being played, though not certain)
#______ = hold out

Tuning:
Down a half-step (low-to-high)
(Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, eb)
Note: For future reference, through out this tab, the strings will be labeled without 
flats, however they are still in the tuning above, this merely saves me, the tabber,
time.

Verse Riff: (slightly distorted, then fully distorted)
("I think I've stayed for the last time...") starts on "stayed"

first off i would say everything is correct but its not. he plays normal drop D tuning on this song. i know this and much more because ive seen them play live twice (both of which i was literally inches away from Simon). i have also talked to him a few times for a long time about his style and tunings. if you chose to play it like this im sure it would sound the same but its not how Simon himself does it. blindside ruuulles though.

actually there are some inaccuracies, however, tuning is not one of them. I have the set-list from the guitar-tech to prove it, and I know their guitar/stage-tech Jason S. personally, and this song is most definately in D# (D#-G#-C#-F#-A#-D#). And, if you played along with the song and listened to it at all, you would hear that it is not in drop-D. So, thanks, but you're unfortunately incorrect. If there is anything I know about this song it is the tuning.
